Payouts, Trophies & Prizes
~10% of the field will receive a payout
Payouts take anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks to process.
We try to make payouts as soon as possible but objections being filed, rule violations, and in-depth photo reviews can result in delays.
For individuals to whom BKFT pays out $600 or more during a calendar year, we will prepare an IRS Form 1099 and require information from the angler before the payment is made.
Feel free to email email@example.com regarding the status of your payout.
